    4040Select '''Save''' to restart the Luup engine.  The device should appear.  By default it shows the power usage for the "whole-house" device.

    42 The plugin creates child devices for additional appliances that the EnviR console detects.  These will first appear when you reload the Luup engine.  Child devices can be renamed and assigned to rooms after the plugin creates them.  (This behaviour can be disabled.  See the section ''Configuring the device''.)

     48The main device's '''Control''' tab also shows the indoor temperature measured by the thermometer inside the console, as well as the console's idea of the current time.  This time can be set on the console; it should be kept roughly accurate to provide good history data.  The console does not know about dates, but it tracks the number of days since the console was first turned on ("Days since birth").

     50Notifications can be set for power usage or temperature on the '''Notifications''' tab.

     52== Child devices for appliances == 
     53 
     54Each appliance detected by the console is presented as a child device.  These devices can be moved to other rooms in the MiOS user interface.

     57 
     58The '''History''' tab on a child device shows the appliance's historical power usage in kWh, in two-hourly, daily and monthly intervals.  This information is downloaded from the console after each odd-numbered hour.  If there is not enough history, the graphs are not shown. 
     59 
     60The graphs are generated using the [http://code.google.com/apis/chart/image/ Google Chart Image API].

    4664After the plugin has been installed, you can alter its configuration.  You may need an additional restart of the Luup Engine for these variables to appear.
